Guangdong Foshan Energetic Film Co., Ltd. invests

Guangdong Foshan Energetic Film Co., Ltd. invests in "the world's most advanced BOPET equipment" - supplied by Brückner


In attendance of the honourable Mr. Liang Shao-Tang, Mayor of the Foshan Municipal Government, the Ground Breaking Ceremony of Foshan Energetic Film Co., Ltd. took place on March 26. This investment project establishes the manufacture of high grade biaxially oriented polyester (BOPET) film.


Foshan Energetic Film taps the great potential of the BOPET film market

Foshan Energetic Film Co., Ltd., which is directly associated with Southern Packaging Co., Ltd. (a very experienced insider within Chinese Packaging Industry), was formed as a joint venture by a group of investors from Singapore and Hong Kong with an initial capital of US$ 50 million. The company was established in the light of the most promising market outlook plus the abundance of business opportunities and attractive resources within the Foshan region. With their new project, Foshan Energetic Film will tap the great potential for a fast development of the BOPET film market within China as well as international export markets. The two 6.7 m wide BOPET production lines will yield an annual output of approx. 30,000 tonnes of high grade packaging material. The company is even planning to add another two production lines immediately after the successful start-up of these two lines thus attaining by the end of 2005 a total annual capacity of 60,000 tonnes.

Brückner - the partner with the most advanced technology

At the Ground Breaking Ceremony, the Management of Foshan Energetic Film emphasized: "We have acquired the world's most advanced BOPET manufacturing equipment from the well-known German company Brückner."

The customer's decision in favour of Brückner was attributable to various factors:


Brückner's excellent reputation as a financially sound, credible long term partner within the BO-film industry

Their advanced technology and innovative equipment from one source, with a long-lasting experience within the BOPET sector

Their extremely reliable adherence to contractual terms of delivery and performance

Their well-proven and highly-efficient reputation in terms of line commissioning ensuring film manufacturers a prompt and fast return on investment

Their well established after-sales service network throughout China and Far East region 


Brückner's Chief Executive Officer - Mr. Peter Wellenhofer assured the customer that Brückner will render their utmost support during all stages of project execution: from punctual delivery of the high-quality equipment, absolute reliability during on-site installation/start-up commissioning to comprehensive servicing measures throughout the life cycle of the new lines.
